week after week, demonstrators outside california's judicial commission have called for the remoll of the sentencing judge. ultra violent, an organization dedicated to fight sexism and generated more than a million clicks against the judge. under mounting pressure, he was reassigned last week to hear only civil cases. the judge is stepping down from doing criminal cases. is that enough? >> oh no. we are going to continue on with the recall. the stanford law school professor spear heading the recall judge campaign backed by well-founded political action committees. >> this judge is just simply biassed. >> reporter: but the professor too has been attacked. some 40 california law school professors issued a letter, saying naked political pressure of this kind risks undermining the very foundation of dispassionate, independent

those who signed the letter. >> reporter: it's a dangerous proposition to push them to be harsh. >> reporter: even the prosecute expressed concern in an e-mail obtained by cbs news, deputy d.a. wrote, your honor, i am really sorry for any negativity or personal attacks you are enduring. it's completely inappropriate. the lenient sentence giving turner for three counts of felony sexual assault bursted into national attention with the release of a powerful letter federal his still anonymous victim. in court testimony, newly released, turner was asked why he was smiling when he was caught. his answer, i was laughing at the situation of how ridiculous it was. in response to the turner case, california lawmakers yesterday passed a bill requiring mandatory prison sentences for sexual assault of an unconscious victim removing judges discretion to pass probation only. now that bill must be signed by governor jerry brown before

7:37 am
maybe your social security number, it's not really secret stuff, but it's certainly to disturbing to think about it altogether in one package. this is not as shy tech a hack of the dnc hack where they were seeking information that was handed out, but it serves to muddy the water and make you feel that the people running your election at the local level are not fully on top of their game. >> the washington post reports that the fbi believes russians were actually behind this incident here. could the information and the voting systems be tampered with? >> you know, that is step after that, they show that you can get in there and get access to basically download that registration information and take it away. can you change it? mess around with it when grow to vote and your name is not on the roll. is that because you forgot to reregister your address or did someone delete your entry? even though we don't see any vd of that happening, people looking at information and taking it with them. that another one of those kind of throw a bunch of dust in the air issues.
7:38 am
this information, that's how they contact voters. you know, they reach back out, get them to the polls on the days. they send them mailing information, brochures, is there any evidence that hackers could change the results on election day? >> that is a whole -- once we get past this issue, then we talk about the voting machines that we talked about a few times which have their own set of vulnerabiliti vulnerabilities. i think you're adding uncertainty on to uncertainty, there's never been a case where we've shown that people are machines for an actual election or using the state election boards in order to change information, but the fact that two of them have already been shown to be vulnerable it shows you when you have state-run elections and everyone has their own ip department, equipment, hardware, software, own skt practices, which they may or may not keep up with properly, off lot of points of weakness in the system. >> and that is one reason why the fbi again issued an alert
7:39 am
potential vulnerability here? >> that's exactly it. when you think about things being run on the national level, you have at least one, you know, system of hardware and and i.t. practices to follow. some will do it better than others and then you have tons of officials who have log-in information, you know, e-mail, password, user names that could get compromised in other ways that they just click on the simple phishing e-mail which is about the lowest hack you can possibly do. >> thank you so much. good to see you. and new concerns about panic in crowded places in an era of heightened security ahead how to prevent crowds flu becoming a danger to themselves after scares at two major u.s. airports. and if you are heading out the door, guess what, you can watch us live to the cbs all access pass. that's on your digital device. i bet you use it. >> all the time. >> you won't to want miss the story of two judges who share an unlike bond after a kidney donation. we'll be right back.

[ applause ] >> i'm nora donald with josh elliott. charlie and gayle are enjoying
8:02 am
shrinking according to a new tracking poll. the weekly survey shows clinton six points ahead of donald trump, 48-242%. she led by eight a week ago. clinton's long time aid huma abedin is separating from her husband, former congressman anthony weiner after another reported case of his sexting. now his first sexting scandal forced him to resign from congress more than five years ago. the new york post published this photo yesterday that weiner reportedly sent to a sexting it shows the former congressman in his underwear with his toddler lying next to him in bed. nancy cordes has covered since it began and rejoins us this morning. and nancy, at this point, at this hour, how is the clinton campaign responding? >> reporter: well hillary clinton herself has had no response at all. they view this as a personal matter. certainly there's a lot of sympathy for abedin and everything she's gone through, not just over the past couple of
8:03 am
several years. they are pushing back at this notion of donald trump that perhaps abedin may have shared classified information with her husband. they say, there's no indication that she or any other top clinton aids gave information to their spouses. >> huma is in the middle of clinton's e-mail troubles, what do you make of her future? >> reporter: well, i think as far as hillary clinton is concerned, she can have any future that she wants. she's extremely close and loyal to the clintons. she has been at hillary clinton's side for 20 she could, however, face some head winds if clinton tried for example to appoint her to a position that required congressional approval. there are many republicans in congress who are concerned about abedin's position when she was at the state department, when she was getting paid at one point simultaneously by the state department, clinton foundation, and a consulting firm tied to the clintons. they say that while that was allowed, that it blurred ethical lines when there really should have been a bright line between
8:04 am
>> nancy, there is a front page story in the new york times today about how hillary clinton and donald trump are preparing for the first debate on september 26th when hillary clinton's campaign consulting psychologist about how to get under donald trump's skin, what else have we learned about debate prep? >> reporter: well, one thing we know is that they are trying to figure out who can best play donald trump in debate prep. he's a pretty unusual character, and ironically, the person who play a brash, outspoken, unpredictable new yorker is anthony weiner. so i don't think he is going to be invited to any debate prep sessions any time soon. beyond that, she is boning up on policy. we saw back in 2012 even president obama who should have had all of this information at his fingertips suffered a little bit in the first debate because he didn't prepare enough. >> nancy, thank you. well donald trump is advertising tomorrow's immigration speech this morning.
8:05 am
said i was going to build a great wall on the southern border, and much more, end quote. his campaign is targeting clinton's immigration plans while his policy has become unclear. in an interview last night, trump's campaign manager kellypakel kellyanne conway will clear things up. >> we don't know, but look, we don't know what actually happens when you enforce a law because nobody does in washon >> why can't anyone answer if he's in favor of deportation. >> i said that many times, he hasn't talked about that -- >> so in favor or against it? >> he has not talked about that in a very long time -- >> do you understand you're not answering the question, right? >> you have to wait until wednesday. >> he's not talking about it -- >> here's the thing. you don't invite robby mook to ask him the same question is because, they don't talk about issues. they talk about us.
8:06 am
kellyanne conway said the immigration plan would lead to total open border. trump campaign ad released clinton on the same issue. >> illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay, collecting social security benefits, skipping the line. our border open, it's more of the same, but worse. donald trump's -- >> factcheck.org writes that the ad quote creates a misleading comparison saying that under hillary clinton illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay, in fact, clinton has would deport viability criminals, terrorists, and anyone who threatens our safety. facebook took down a fake news story. days after removing cuban editors from that department. the false headline said fox news exposes traitor megyn kelly kicks her out for megyn kelly. it was visible on the trending list. the company announced friday it would no longer require people to write descriptions for trending topics. earlier this year, facebook's

8:15 am
number of donors is only up 117%. the need is especially great among african americans who make up 13% of the population, but account for more than a third of all patients waiting for kidneys. ilene didn't want her friend to wait, so she stepped up to see if she was a match. >> i would like to think that people would do whatever they can for their friends. and i don't feel like i'm a hero. that's just who i am. this is how i was brought up. >> reporter: ilene who was half moseley's size had kidneys there were a perfect fit. a reminder that it's not about what's on the outside, but on the inside. >> i had joked along with the doctors, don't be fooled by my size. i think i have big organs too. >> and it was a huge kidney. >> keep your hands inside the
8:16 am
transplanted that huge kidney last month. >> go get em. >> reporter: it's already allowing moseley to spend more time with his two daughters and wife, while deepening his friendship with his fellow judge. it sounds like you're family. >> we're family, yeah. and i think that's one of the people that know, we all get caught up in the fact that, you know, some people don't associate with other people because of their race or what have you, but, you know, when it comes down to it, inside we're all the same. kidneys. the more you interact with other people that are different than you. the more you learn, the more you grow as a person than that's the diversity that makes us great. i think we need to embrace that more. >> reporter: judge moseley says that he expects the judge to keep a close eye on his diet while here at work, because she wants to make sure that he keeps her kidney -- well now his kidney, healthy. josh. >> seems fair. thank you for that.

8:22 am
they'll work a 30-hour week, 10:00 to 2:00 four days a week so they have 16 hours of overlap with their colleagues. >> now these employees will receive 75% of full-time pay, is it a cost-cutting measure? >> no. it does not look like a cost-cutting measure, one way to tell, they're going to receive full benefits. usually when people have part-time workers, they don't paz full benefits, they've also to the extent they want to transition to be a full-time worker, they can. about cost. the ceo of amazon, his own work says it's about creating a diverse work environment as well as he recognized that a traditional work schedule may not be one size fits all. and to that point of diversity, maybe bringing in more women since reportedly 76% of their managerial positions are held by men, and women obviously make a huge percentage of their customer base. and maybe more flexibility when it comes to child rearing, et
8:23 am
work there. >> melody, last time the new york times published a scathing piece, expose about the work culture at amazon. how much of this is perhaps a pr response to that? >> i'm not sure that's the case. now, it is well telegraphed that that story got underneath the skin of amazon's ceo, and you could tell bethe responses they sent out afterwards that it really bothered him. he said so, but i think this will have more about the fact that they need to attract the one additional issue right now that many people don't consider, which is that we're nearing full employment in the united states with a 5% unemployment rate. it is getting hard to find really qualified people, and then you're competing against other great companies. so they need to be innovative just like they are on all sorts of aspects of their business. >> amazon had a pretty big work force for a tech company, it's twice that of apple, four times the amount of google, but do you
8:24 am
and follow this lead? and the 30 hours too, lst also implications for the affordable care act, right? >> some people are ahead of them. the two big accounts firms offer 30-hour workweeks to salaried employees. i think we will see more and more companies follow, but one of my sources said, i reached out yesterday in seattle and they made it clear, this was another big company and hr representative. see a wholesale change and known for i it's striving culture, don't even think about it. we're not going to wake up one day and have a population that works 30 hours. it's not going to happen. in terms of the affordable care act, no effect, full benefits. >> fascinating to watch the impact. melody hobson, we appreciate the time today. >> thanks melody. we are here in studio 57, we're going to find out how his

8:40 am
the things that do correlate are whether you're able to have dinner with your family and full night of sleep. any time that homework or anything else competes with those things, it's a negative. obviously the more time you can learn, the better. you should have dinner with your family. >> you think there's good research? that homework correlates with success? >> between the quantity of homework, and that's because we know, there's different types of homework. you can memorizing words or something that's actually more valuable, but, they do know that -- or we know that not having dinner with your family or not getting full night's sleep and to some degree common sense is correlated with some optimal outcome. >> khan has just become the most popular man among kids. >> i know. learning, learning is good. but sleep. >> two little girls who are in. >> thank you, best of luck to you. >> and the names of some of the apps they can find them.
